Suicide Squad by David Ayer is an American upcoming action film filled with discoveries and dangers, unusual characters and situations. It tells the story of a team of convict evildoers, who undertake dangerous missions for the U.S. government in exchange for their clemency. Though the plot is not fully revealed for the audience yet, the basic premise from John Ostrander’s comic book is expected to remain the same. Ayer follows Deadshot (Will Smith), The Joker (Jared Leto), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Slipknot (Adam Beach), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez) and other characters known as Task Force X.
The current film rises from one of the series of comic books, created by Robert Kanigher, Ross Andru and John Ostrander in 1969 and 1987, about two fictional organizations in the DC Comics Universe. The story revolves around the commander Amanda Waller, a powerful black woman, who runs the organization out of Belle Reve prison. She is a vigorous opponent and an ally to the superheroes despite having no superpowers.
One of many advantages of the film is its strong, star-studded cast. A well-played, but challenging, role of The Joker by Jared Leto is already a big suddenness for me, as it is hard to predict how this character will fit into the plot of Suicide Squad. Also, Margot Robber’s voice, manners and style are perfectly suitable for her role of Harley Quinn, originally a psychiatrist and later The Joker’s girlfriend, and, as I consider, will easily steal audience’s affection. Not to mention Will Smith, who will bring his own unique brand of acting to the character of one of the most notorious assassins in the DC Universe – Deadshot.
Suicide Squad is an ideal example of a superhero action movie of a new age. Considering the director’s experience in making quality films of such type, Suicide Squad will be soon known for plot’s intensity, cast’s charisma and a high-level filming.
